Since the breakout of the 29ers into the 26” world, long travel 29er forks have only been seen on a “wish list”. There were several in existence, but for 2009 – Ask and you shall receive!
At Interbike 2008 there were an abundance of 5-6” travel forks. Although some were labeled as prototypes, the idea to progress more than 4” is here.
Check out some of the 29er long travel forks from various makers:
Fluid 29 150mm
Magic 29 110mm and Fluid 110mm
Fluid 29 135mm
Fox Racing Shox
Prototype Marzocchi 100-140 mm
